LONDON, June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Now in its 4th success year, Joint Simulation and Training attracts senior military figures from leading Armed Forces including US Marine Corps, Italian Air Force, French Army, Swedish Armed Forces and UK MoD. The main discussion point will be how the armed forces globally are using or plan to use the latest and future technologies for live, virtual and constructive training throughout their training cycle and how we can achieve effective blended training, Value for Money Procurement, interoperability, the use of simulators for pre-deployment and mission rehearsals.
One of the key elements of this symposium will be to explore how to effectively use distributed, serious gaming and e-learning technologies in the training syllabus. As such, case studies from organisations such as the UK MoD's Joint Services Command and the Norwegian Military Academy will be presented on the economical acquisition, integration, use of COTS and the potential benefits of new learning aides.
Furthermore, Colonel Dennis Thompson, Director of MAGTF Training Simulation, US Marine Corps will be briefing delegates of successfully blending live, virtual and constructive training which will include a session on the importance of training design to use the right LVC tools at the right time throughout a training program. Representatives from the UK MoD will then discuss achieving value for money procurement in flexible training solutions by the use of procedural simulators to maximize training time and avoid failure as well as balancing cost with the fidelity of new systems.
The symposium has attracted key decision makers from military and industry organisations to learn and share their experiences and find out key solutions to deliver those training programs cost effectively.
